Tour donation page:

Making something like Vinyl Gems of Violin tour happen requires very substantial funds and partnerships. I was lucky that I had an opportunity to make the first few steps when I presented this idea to Allianz Musical Insurance, who have been extremely supportive of this project. Although they were unable to commit to the full project, they were extremely kind to give me a one-off grant which covered the expenses which the development of this idea and making the first few steps like figuring out things like venue research, most suitable campaign strategy and budgeting.

With that grant I was able to collaborate with WildKat PR who offered me some essential expertise and helped me work out the most essential details of starting something like this. 

Now the next step is to raise the full funds for this project!

I will be extremely grateful for all the donations made towards my "Vinyl Gems of Violin" tour, whatever size they will be!

An original tour such as this one is an ambitious task to take off the ground. 


It will involve a lot of people, require various forms of actions, venue/piano hire, tour organisation, etc etc.

It is also essential to have a PR and marketing campaign. 


All of this comes down to quite a substantial cost, and putting together just one out of twelve concerts of this tour can cost up to £4,000.

However, everyone who is collaborating with me on this project already, strongly believe that it will all be worth it as this project aims to bring something unique to today's classical music world and I sincerely hope that it gets more of you interested and as excited about it as we are! 





Lots of love from Dunja
